Quilting Jane, Row D

I’m starting to get pretty excited, with just 4 more rows to be quilted, the end is in sight! Row D has been completed and I’ve used a total of 575 yards of thread to date.

Left Side Triangle 9 and block D1. I stitched in the ditch on these blocks.

Blocks D2 and D3. Block D2 I did an outline in the white background then stitched around the blue flower. I made a mistake when I pieced this block. The outside corners of the blue flower were supposed to also have had a white triangles sewn on them. I missed that and came up with this design. I think it is cute and just adds originality to my quilt. D3 is stitched in the ditch in the white center and straight line quilted in the blue background.

IMG_0198Blocks D4 and D5. I outlined the star in the white background fabric and stitched in the ditch around the melons. Then using my perfect circle templates, I drew the center design. I really like it. Block D5 has a similar star in the center but I added a circle instead of a curvy square. The rest of this block is stitched in the ditch.

IMG_0197Blocks D6 and D7. I used one of my quilting stencil designed for the center of D6 and extended the quilting into the corner triangles. I also stitched in the ditch on the white strips. For block D7 I used a spiderweb stencil but it doesn’t show very well. I also stitched in the ditch around the white center and the outside of the blue.

IMG_0196Blocks D8 and D9. Block D8 was a simple stitch in the ditch around the applique pieced and D9 was stitched in the ditch around the outside of the album and on the inside around the white center. I did an outline stitch in the white background.

IMG_0195Blocks D10 and D11. Both blocks were completely stitched in the ditch. I thought about adding more background quilting in D11 but decided not too.

IMG_0194Blocks D12 and D13. D 12 is completely stitched in the ditch. The center of D13 was big enough I could quilt this flower. I added some quilting in the blue background.

IMG_0193Right side triangle 4. This triangle was stitched in the ditch. I quilted a curvy square in the center square.

I think this row had the most blocks with center spaces that needed quilting. This was a fun row to quilt.

IMG_0201I also worked on another charity project. Our guild is making the Sweet Surrender quilt designed by Sue Cody of Dragonfly Studio. I appliqued several triangles several months ago. The applique blocks are alternated by pieced triangles. I had pieced some triangles in October but didn’t post about them. The committee still had triangles to be pieced so I took 4 more. The directions tell you to EPP the pieced triangles but that takes awhile. One of the women showed the pattern to a draftsman at the factory where they work. He drafted a foundation paper pieced pattern which is a LOT faster than EPP. The triangles aren’t squared up and I don’t have to remove the paper, the committee will do that.

  1. Wow! I love a mistake/bit of originality in a quilt! That’s a lot of thread you’ve used, it’s fascinating to have an idea of that sort of thing!
